Prep sports: Another cold day means another freeze-out for area high school sports (UPDATE)

January 31, 2019

Thursday morning’s brutally cold temperatures prompted high schools across the Wisconsin State Journal coverage area to postpone or cancel all varsity sporting events for the fourth consecutive day.

Athletic directors now face the task of arranging open dates for opponents, facilities and officials to make up the postponed events.

In wrestling and swimming, however, events had to be canceled altogether because conference meets are scheduled for this weekend, marking the end of the regular season.
